Episode 25 - Pork Meat Will Be Doing So

This week's episode is a veritable all-you-can-eat buffet of entertainment, with filling dishes that include the latest movie news, a bad-ass trailer for an upcoming smaller film, a dissection of Ryan Gosling's accent, a look into Paul Giamatti's hairpiece, and two dark confessions alongside a haiku tray for dessert. EAT UP and meet me on the other side for all the trailers we talk about this week.

On Your Radar: Flying Swords of Dragon Gate

Seriously, yo: This movie has swords that fly and gates either made by, for, or out of dragons. Wire-fu is back, snitches!


Netflix Roulette: The Wild Hunt

Matt is weird. He loves LARPing, which is "live-action role playing." Oh, he doesn't like to DO it, he likes to watch movies that have LARP as a plot point. Don't look at me, I'm not the one with the cinematic LARP fetish. I will, however, be watching THIS:

Cutting Room for October 12

  • Film Streams (filmstreams.org) isn’t satisfied with entertaining you; they also want to make you live forever. At least, that’s what I assume the intent is behind their film series titled “Forever Young.” Featuring family and children’s films, the series is underway with Make Believe, a coming-of-age story about young magicians, already screening on Saturdays, Sundays and Thursdays through Oct 20. The immortality-inducing flicks continue throughout this fall and include The Secret of Roan Inish, A Cat in Paris, The Goonies, It’s a Wonderful Life and The Polar Express, which terrifies me with its soulless, dead-eyed Tom Hanks animation. I should probably point out that a transfer of immortality may not be guaranteed, but definitely ask at the box office.
  • In yet another sign that the idea well has been bled dry, the writers behind Toy Story, Alec Sokolow and Joel Cohen, are possibly working on a big-screen adaptation of Farmville, the once-captivating Facebook game where you grow things you can’t ever eat. In other words, two guys are writing a movie about farming.
  • Johnny Depp’s descent into self-parody continues, as he is producing and possibly starring as the lead in a biography of Dr. Seuss. Although it is highly likely that the real Theodor Geisel was a reserved man who dressed in casual clothing, we can all look forward to a version of him with pasty skin, garish gothic attire and likely some kind of highly affected speech pattern. No word on when Tim Burton will announce his participation.

Movieha - Omaha’s Movie Podcast!

Once more with feeling, Matt and I try to heat up your eardrums with conversations of the kind only our demented minds can cook up. We talk about Jason Statham's bald sweatiness, how Aronofsky can follow up facilitating Natalie Portman's pregnancy, check out a trailer for a drug-fueled flick, chat about a guy named Pinkie, gush over "Sherlock," and play another round of "Laundered Movie Quotes" before finishing with a haiku or two. What are you waiting for?! Meet me on the other side for the trailers we mentioned this week.

On Your Radar: I Melt With You

I normally don't promote anything even remotely Piven-related, but I make an exception for a film described as both the year's worst and the year's best.

Netflix Roulette: Ironclad

I'm not going to lie, if this movie were any good, you've already had heard of it. Still, this is the game we play when we play roulette. Join us, won't you?
